Russell Brand and Vivienne Westwood have joined thousands of masked anti-capitalist demonstrators who have descended on Westminster for a Bonfire Night protest, bringing chaos to the capital.

Scores of riot police were on stand-by amid threats from campaign group Anonymous that the demonstration would create a blockade throughout London.

Officers were forced to draw their batons as missiles, plastic cones and road signs were launched along the Mall, while fireworks were left off in Trafalgar Square.

The masked demonstrators – some as young as 14 – also kicked and dragged over security railings while chanting ‘one solution, revolution’, as others daubed graffiti on riot vans.

During the march, protesters also let off fireworks and threw firecrackers at police who were guarding the Victoria Memorial, hurling abuse at them.

The crowd surged through central London, pushing over bins, shouting at bemused shoppers and commuters and hitting cars and people with yellow flexible tubes.

At one point, they surrounded a man driving a new Mercedes car and sprayed the back of it with an aerosol, pushing their tubes at him as he opened windows to remonstrate with them.

The protest, known as the Million Mask March, was one of hundreds organised at the same time in cities around the world.

Demonstrators wearing sinister Guy Fawkes masks – made famous in the film V for Vendetta – descended on Trafalgar Square, waving banners and placards, before marching towards Parliament Square at 6.30pm.

As they milled around the square, they chanted anti-establishment slogans before climbing on to the base of Nelson’s Column and letting off fireworks.  

They then moved onto Buckingham Palace before hundreds of protesters made their way through central London, going to Piccadilly Circus, Regent Street and Oxford Circus.

They then marched to the BBC’s headquarters at Broadcasting House on nearby Portland Place and going along Oxford Street to Hyde Park and Park Lane.  

The group said in its manifesto that it fights against mass surveillance, austerity and infringement of human rights.

Police said that, as of 10.10pm, there had been five arrests. A man was held in Bridge Street, Westminster, on suspicion of a fireworks offence, before being subsequently ‘de-arrested’.

A second man believed to be in his early 30s was arrested near Buckingham Palace on suspicion of assaulting a police officer, and a 37-year old woman was arrested in nearby Birdcage Walk on suspicion of the same offence.

Two further people have been arrested – one on suspicion of obstruction of the highway and one on suspicion of attempted grievous bodily harm.   

Russell Brand also joined the London arm of the worldwide Million Mask March last year.  

During that march, energy bills were burned, fireworks were shot at Buckingham Palace and there were 15 arrests, following scuffles with police. 

He later wrote an article saying that riots are sparked ‘when dialogue fails, when they feel unrepresented and bored by the illusion’. 

Today, it seemed the group were hoping for a similar result. On its website before the march, one of the group members wrote: ‘What I’d like to see is a MASSIVE Anonymous blockade of London City.

‘Complete physical GRIDLOCK. Only thing that gets through are Fire & Rescue and ambulances. NOTHING ELSE MOVES.’

The London march is part of a day of global demonstrations, which include rallies across Europe, the Americas and Asia. 

The protest has led to officers from the Metropolitan Police, British Transport Police and the City of London Police Force being on stand-by.

The heightened security measures came as the Metropolitan Police attempted to contact Anonymous, but no one came forward with any details. 

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said they had attempted to contact organisers of the event ‘without success’.

And it added that they have imposed Section 60AA of the Criminal Justice and Public Order Act 1994 across Westminster between 5pm today and 2am tomorrow, which provides powers to remove masks when police fear a crime will be committed.

Scotland Yard said: ‘The Met Police deals with around 4,500 protests and events every year. These can range from a single protester to hundreds of thousands of people walking through the capital’s streets.

‘Officers work with organisers to ensure that people are able to carry out their right to peaceful protest whilst ensuring Londoners can go about their daily business.’ 

Last year’s London march saw more than 2,500 protesters take to the streets, in a rally which saw fireworks thrown at Buckingham Palace and a total of 15 arrests.  

Rather than communicate directly with local authorities, Anonymous sent a message to the government, and to global world leaders: ‘To oppressive governments, we say this: we do not expect our campaign to be completed in a short time frame. However, you will not prevail against the angry masses of the body politic.’

Police have been called to investigate claims Yaya Toure was racially abused within hours of reactivating his Twitter account.

Manchester City midfielder Toure rejoined Twitter on Monday, five months after leaving the social network site in order to focus on the World Cup.

The Ivory Coast international posted his first tweet at 6 p.m., reflecting on City’s derby win over Manchester United the previous day:

Yaya Touré        ✔ @YayaToure

Great to be back on twitter after a good win yesterday. Now my focus is on the next game… Happy Monday everyone!!

 

Within hours of posting the message, the 31-year-old received abusive and racist messages from other Twitter accounts.

Anti-discrimination group Kick It Out was appalled by some of the tweets and decided to report the matter to the police.

“NEWS: We are informing the Police of racist tweets directed @yayatoure earlier this evening and offer him our full support #kickitout,” KIO posted on Twitter.

A Kick It Out spokesperson told Press Association Sport on Monday night: “At this stage we have received complaints about two separate tweets of a racist nature aimed at Yaya Toure and now we are informing the police.

“Yaya Toure has been on Twitter for a matter of hours and he has already received abuse of an appalling nature. We are disturbed by the fact that someone can be treated this way. It makes footballers start to question why they should use these platforms. We will offer Yaya Toure our full support.”

On Monday evening Toure favourited a tweet from one City fan – @111Lesley111 – who offered her support to the former Barcelona player:

Gangland London: West London Drugs Ring Caught After Posing for Selfies with Cannabis and Cash

Gangland London: West London Drugs Ring Caught After Posing for Selfies with Cannabis and Cash

west-london-drugs-bust

  • A west London drugs gangs face prison sentences after bragging about their cannabis operation by posing for selfies with the drug and huge wads of cash.

Drug dealer Sophian Chhayra, 24, smiled as he was pictured cradling an enormous bag of the Class-B drug and thousands of pounds in £50 notes.

Gang member Zakaria Chentouf, also 24, posed with a mountain of cash from the proceeds of selling drugs across Kensington and Chelsea.

Five men in total admitted to drugs charges in September after police busted the drug ring in May after they targeted gang-related youth violence and drug dealing.

Chhayra and Chentouf, Ahmed Mahomud and Fouad Soussi, both 20, admitted conspiracy to supply controlled drugs, while Yousif Mahomud, 19, admitted to being concerned in the supply of Class-B drugs at Isleworth Crown Court. They will be sentenced today (24 October).

Four men were previously sentenced at the same court on 12 September in relation to the operation. They are: Liam Hodge, 23, of Notting Hill, Dominic Joseph and Paul Hewitt, both 22, from Westminster, and Jahmal Medor-Daley, 20, of Westminster.

The operation to tackle the gang – codenamed Capulet – was launched in December 2013 after a spate of violence in the area.

It was soon established the attacks were linked to a ring of perpertrators and, using knowledge from the local community, officers launched 18 dawn raids in May that included the homes of the five men.

Large quantities of Class A and B drugs and cash money were seized along with mobile phones.

Detective Constable Helen Lomas, said: “These convictions are a real win for the communities of Kensington and Chelsea and its residents who have been blighted by the intolerable annoyance of this gang.

“This investigation overcame some major hurdles, particularly because there was a continued wall of silence and nobody willing to come forward and speak to police about the spate of linked violence earlier this year. By securing the best evidence available with the help of the community, we have been able to bring this gang to justice.

“These individuals used their mobile phone cameras to gloat about their success in illegal trade – this pride helped secure their undoing, and these photos provided compelling evidence at court.”

A British teenager has been murdered abroad – why is David Cameron so quiet?

Cameron has intervened over the killing of David Miller and Hannah Witheridge in Thailand, but for Tyrell Matthews-Burton he does nothing. There is no consistency

“I want people to know Tyrell’s life was important and that his death was senseless, unnecessary and brutal.” Not my words, but those of Tyrell Matthews-Burton’s mother, Sharon Matthews. At present she is sat in a Greek court trying to piece together what action has been taken since her only son was stabbed to death on his 19th birthday in Malia last year. Two other young British men sit accused of this crime, and a further 14 other UK nationals are also connected to the incident or charged with offences.

Despite the overwhelming British interests in ensuring a fair trial and active investigation, our government continues to sit on the sidelines and this incident remains stubbornly outside the public eye.

Those whose stories do capture the attention of news editors seem to have a very different experience. To great fanfare, this week the prime minister personally sent the Met to intervene in the investigation of the murder of two British citizens in Thailand. This disparity in attention and action in such cases should sit uneasily on our national conscience.

It is every parent’s nightmare for their child to go on holiday for the first time unsupervised and not return home. Tyrell and his friends were celebrating university places and birthdays. They did not know the young men now accused of his murder prior to that fateful evening, despite being falsely accused in the Greek press as gang members. Since Tyrell’s death, concerns about the nature of the investigation have grown. The Greek authorities returned the clothes Tyrell was wearing when he was killed to his mother via the post. Questioning of ministers has uncovered that one of the accused of affray with connection to the fight was convicted in London of carrying a knife just five days before Tyrell’s death, yet allowed by the judge to suspend his sentence to go on holiday. UK-based witnesses were initially told they would have to pay their own costs to travel to give evidence in Greece. Requests to ensure the safety and security of those doing so have been left unanswered, meaning several have refused to participate.

A memorandum exists between the police, Foreign Office and UK coroners that states where a British national is killed and a British national charged with this crime overseas, the case can be tried in the UK. To date, requests for this to happen have been dismissed without consideration.

Tyrell’s family and friends have been tireless in seeking assistance from our government to address these concerns. As Sharon’s MP, I took her to look David Cameron in the eye and ask for his personal help, only to be told that the government cannot intervene in the investigative processes of other countries if their input is not requested. Except, the cases of Madeleine McCann, and David Miller and Hannah Witheridge in Thailand, highlight that the government is in fact willing to break its own rules when it sees fit. To ask why these cases receive such attention isn’t to suggest that they should not, but to call for consistency in the concern shown from our consulates and officials. The amount of coverage a trial is given by the mainstream media should not be our guide in whether our citizens are fairly treated.

Lawyers this week in Greece confirmed that little forensic evidence has been recovered to try to identify who in the frantic nightclub melee wielded the knife that killed Tyrell. When I asked Cameron on Wednesday why he had not asked the police to help but had demanded their involvement in the investigation of the Thailand murders, he made a point of justifying this by saying the matter involved two British citizens. Tyrell was a British citizen. It is still not too late for all of us to ask what happened to this young British man and how do we get justice for his British family as well, Cameron.

A CRIMINAL who received a beating while burgling a pub from a baseball bat-wielding, semi-naked landlord has been jailed.

John Ryan, from Brent, north London, broke into popular Crystal Palace supporters’ pub The White Horse, in Selhurst Road, with his brother Michael at 6.55am on November 13 last year.

They started smashing fruit machines with sledgehammers, but were unprepared for the arrival of landlord Danny Foley, who emerged in just his leggings with a commemorative Celtic FC baseball bat.

He hit the intruders with the bat before they tried to flee and in the process, hit Mr Foley – who has since left the pub – across the face with a broken metal spade.

Michael Ryan, 40, pleaded guilty in May to five counts of burglary at a string of pubs across the capital, and was jailed for seven years.

John Ryan, 42, did not admit to three counts of burglary until Monday (October 20) after months of denying the offences. He was sentenced to 30 months in jail today (October 23) at Croydon Crown Court.

They were caught after their DNA was found at the scene and The White Horse’s CCTV cameras captured the break-in.

Watch the footage of Mr Foley interrupt their break-in below

The brothers were initially both wearing balaclavas, but Mr Foley managed to remove one of these, which police used to trace the men.

The CCTV footage is to be used on BBC programme Caught Red Handed later in the year and Mr Foley said he quite enjoys watching it back – even though he was injured at the time.

He said: “I love watching it; it cheers me right up.”

Mr Foley had been burgled six weeks before and had more than £500 taken, but he was ready for the raiders this time.

“I just missed the two the previous time because I didn’t know where the noise was coming from,” he explained.

“But as I switched on the downstairs light they ran away. This time, as soon as my dog jumped on my bed, scared, I got up and was only in my boxers. I slung on some leggings and ran down there.

“You can see the adrenalin was in me and I would have hit him again if I could get one foot in front of other, but I was gone after he hit me with the spade.

 

Rough Copy Dropped by Epic Records

Rough Copy Dropped by Epic Records

Less than a year after they signed with the LA Reid-ran label, Rough Copy have reportedly been dropped by Epic Records, given the boot after their debut single failed to fly in their domestic market.

Full story below…

Picked up by the label after they competed on hit show X Factor UK, the R&B trio has been tapped for success both home and away when a who’s who of the UK’s strongest Urban Pop writers and producers were enlisted to build bops for their debut album.

However, any hopes of following in the globe trotting footsteps of Sam Smith, Adele and Emeli Sande were soon crushed for the boys, reportedly losing the label’s support when their debut single ‘Street Love’ failed to impact the UK’s ‘Official Singles Chart.‘
